LeBron James Wants His Return To Cleveland To ‘Better Not Be Like 2010’


LeBron James’ fist game back in Cleveland, after signing with the Miami Heat was one of his greatest games ever if we take a look at the circumstances. Fans threw batteries at him, booed him before the game and during every single possesion. Cleveland fans constantly insulted him and LeBron responded with 38 points and 8 assists like it was nothing!

After leaving the Cavs again this past summer, LeBron James talked about better not getting that reaction this time. That’s what he told Joe Vardon of The Athletic:

“(Expletive), it better not be,” he said, referring to the flaming pile of hate and vitriol few had seen inside a pro sports arena.

“It doesn’t matter if it’s negative, because the only thing that matters is what I gave to the city, what I gave to that community, what I’m still giving to that community,” James said. “It doesn’t matter. At the end of the day, they have one obligation and that’s to cheer for their team. And I’m not on the team.”

“And personally I’m in a whole different space than I was in 2010, so (expletive) doesn’t bother me.”

I don’t think Cavs fans will react like this tomorrow night, after he won them their first Championship.
